Julie and her husband joined LIFE Skills as participants when they realized their new mortgage and credit card bills would be too much to handle. “In LIFE Skills, we learned to budget our money, and use cash instead of credit. We also learned the importance of good stewardship and how to be frugal by growing a garden, canning, etc.” Upon LIFE Skills graduation, Julie decided to give back by becoming a Children’s Ministry Volunteer. That was 8 years ago, and today she’s still involved with this ministry. “It has become my mission. You see the need first-hand to teach Jesus to un-churched children. My children are also learning the importance of service.” In the last two years, Julie has also volunteered as a Love INC Board Member. Her life experiences and conquered struggles are some of Love INC’s greatest assets for the Board. “It’s a full circle of love. From being a participant, to a volunteer and now as a Board Member. Why do I continue? The words “break my heart for what break yours” (from the song Jesus, Friend of Sinners by Casting Crowns) speaks to me. That’s what Love INC means in my eyes.
